Many people suffered injuries and one fatality occurred after a rush-hour wreck in August on the I-405 in Irvine. The chain reaction accident started when a Ford Windstar driven by a 52-year-old man struck a 2013 Toyota Prius. The accident involved three other vehicles and clogged the roadway.
Accidents like this are often preventable and caused by a driver’s negligence. When negligent behaviors like texting and driving, speeding, drinking and driving or failing to yield lead to an accident, a driver may be found at fault in criminal or civil court. Those who suffer injuries in a crash like this can seek compensation for expenses relating to the accident by filing a personal injury claim in civil court.
When a family loses a loved one in a crash, they can file a wrongful death claim. This holds a reckless driver monetarily responsible and gives family members a chance to recover expenses after funeral costs, medical bills and lost wages. A momentary amount could also be rewarded for the emotional suffering a negligent driver caused.
